Day Five: Keep Asking, Keep Seeking, Keep Knocking

Friday, May 30th, 2014

Matthew 7:7 (NIV) - “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

Reflection:

The ability to live for God is given to us when we pray. Jesus’ followers can keep on asking, keep on seeking, and keep on knocking.  Persistent, consistent prayer is important in our lives.

Our requests must be in harmony with God’s will (“your will be done,” Matt. 6:10).  It is only through prayer that believers can stay in contact with God, know what he wants them to do, and then have the strength to do God’s will in all areas of life. God will answer believers who persistently ask, seek, and knock. Jesus promised, “For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” Those who bring their needs to God can trust that they will be satisfied.

Let’s pray according to this promise of Jesus.  Let’s ask, seek, and knock for provision and for the things of God’s kingdom to come in our lives, in our church.  Let’s also ask, seek, and knock for the lives of those that our church is called to love.
